Our engagement

Local development

A local economic development

To contribute responsibly to local development, we favor local sourcing for staff, contractors, operational and financial partners, as well as the distribution of the energy produced in the territories. Short circuits remain our DNA, key to implement the ecological transition to serve a local and responsible economy.

Only a perpetual and engaging dialogue can create an adequate response to current and future environmental, economic and social challenges:


  • CO2 emissions reduction
  • Carbon footprint reduction


  • Lower energy prices for the consumer.
  • Reduction of the energy dependence in France and Belgium.


  • Revitalization of mining basins.
  • Short circuits: creation of direct jobs, subcontracting.
  • Increase in “buying power”.

An example of involvement of local stakeholders: the local committee for Lachambre wellsite

A committee focused on monitoring of our wellsite operations is set up. Composed of local representatives, local residents and any stakeholder, it meets on regular basis to review the progress of work carried out on our wellsite. It offers an opportunity for the Operator to address all questions and concerns. Regular site visits are also organized.
